Soft-Lite Windows Wins DWM Magazine Green Award

Date: 6 November 2015
Soft-Lite Windows has been named one of Door and Window Market Magazine's (DWM) 2015 Green Award Winners for its Elements Double-Hung Window with Suntuitive Glass.  DWM’s Green Awards recognize a few select companies who truly embrace energy-efficient principles and practices.

DWM is the leading trade publication serving the door and window industry; Soft-Lite will be profiled in the magazine’s upcoming issue.

Elements Double-Hung Windows by Soft-Lite far exceed all industry standards for energy efficiency, as well as air and water penetration and durability. These high-performance windows incorporate unique features such as K-Beam thermal reinforcement with Kevlar; Comfort Foam™ polyurethane insulation foam fill; Ultra-Smart triple-fin weather stripping; and unique Dura-Sill™ window sill design. These windows offer consumers cost-saving energy efficiency, superb safety and security, and enhanced curb appeal for their homes.

Elements Windows can feature Suntuitive, a thermochromic interlayer for dynamic windows which lightens and darkens by itself -- with absolutely no mechanical or electrical intervention -- based on heat and direct sunlight. In winter, it will allow the sun's heat to passively warm a home, but in summer, it will tint to counteract unwanted solar heat gain. Suntuitive is used in conjunction with Soft-Lite's high-performance double-pane glass with Low-E and argon gas, so consumers get the benefits of self-tinting glass, as well as the superb thermal performance that this glass system provides.

"We are proud to be named a Green Award recipient from DWM Magazine. Green technology is a philosophy we focus on every day," said Tyson Schwartz, Soft-Lite Vice President of Sales & Marketing. "This philosophy is shared by our customers, who also concentrate on being green and incorporating efficient products like Elements Windows with Suntuitive Glass into their businesses. Thermal efficiency is a very important component of our business, and directly affects the way we manufacture and market our products. We appreciate the recognition and are proud to accept this award on behalf of Soft-Lite and our customers. We look forward to continuing our development and innovation of green technology and products."

Soft-Lite is a vinyl replacement window and door manufacturer headquartered in Streetsboro, Ohio. The company was recently named National ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year for the second consecutive year. The company is also a multiple Crystal Achievement Award winner and is a recipient of the Friedman Corporation Customer Appreciation Award, the Window & Door Top 100 Manufacturers recognition, and the Door and Window “Companies To Watch” recognition.
